Weekend Roundup

My wgoddessofthehunt_smeekend was great! Friday we finally bought a car we’ve been looking at forever. We keep our cars a long time.  The car we traded in was over nine years old. 

Saturday I went to my chapter meeting of Romance Writer’s of America. It’s always great to hang out with other writers! That’s where I bought  the book I’m reading right now, GODDESS OF THE HUNT by Tessa Dare (Eve Ortega).  I am really enjoying it! It’s been a while since I’ve read a historical romance but now I’m hooked on Tessa Dare’s historical romance!

Sunday I went out to lunch with my sister AND she gave me a huge bag of books. My sister and I trade books, so we get twice the reading for half the price—or something like that. Math isn’t my strong point!

This week and I am going to be writing like a fiend…although I really want to finish Tessa’s book!

How was your weekend?

    Depressing. Don’t know what was going on with me–hormones were all over the place. I don’t like doing unhappy when there isn’t a reason. Of course I blogged about it. Blogging can be very theraputic. Much better today. Kiddo and I will be going to the movies today, Aliens in the Attic, and meet the teacher is later this afternoon.

    I figured out how to approach the next scene, and got some good words out. My daughter and I made applesauce bread. Tiger won. The Yankees swept the BoSox and there was exhibition football. All in all a good weekend.

    Oh, and we had a major rain last night with no flooding. One or all of the little fixes we tried worked. Yay.

    My weekend was nice. I got a lot of work done on my cross stitch project and hubby and I went to the movies. We saw The Ugly Truth, laughed so hard thought my sides were going to split.

    Trying to figure out how to finish a scene in my WIP. Left myself hangin’ and now I’m stuck. Off to the day job. Happy writing!

    My weekend was okay. I’ve been on a reading frenzy which is a both a good thing and bad thing. The bad meaning if I read all the books I have then I have to go on a book shopping spree. Wait, perhaps that’s a good thing.

    Have a good Monday.

    Margaret, sympathies to you! I know what you mean. I hate that depressed feeling, particularly because when I have a problem, I solve it. That feeling really can’t be “solved” so we add frustration to the mix.

    Glad today is better! Have fun at the movies.

    B.E., fantastic news on both figuring out your scene and the basement not flooding! You did have a good weekend!

    Erika, THE UGLY TRUTH was funny! I thought the remote control scene was priceless!

    Maybe the solution to your scene will come to you today. It’s amazing how the answer just pops up at unexpected times.

    Dru, buying more books is never bad :-) I’m jealous of your reading frenzy, but when I get this book done, I plan to gorge myself on books.

    I’ve finished polishing two chapters this morning so I get to come up for a net break! First stop, right here but there’s no appletinis. We must fix that oversight immediately! *mixes and pours*

    We did some major repairs and cleaning on the house and I still managed to edit about 60 pages. I’m almost halfway through now. I made some career decisions I’m happy about and I’m ready for this week to get rolling. Cheers, witches!

    I had a full weekend. RWA chapter book meeting, UFC fight, football, MMA fight and we bought a weight bench. (boy am I ever glad football is back!!) Hrmm…after reading this I sound like a guy. :P

    Silver, so sorry about the appletinis! Thanks for picking up the slack! I’m down to the wire on the book, which means I’m a slacker everywhere else!

    Awesome about the repairs and edits!I bet you’ve done a lot more by now!

    Kira, LOL! Silver’s right, the RWA part ruins the guy image :-) So are you going to use the weight bench?

    Silver, we do have a couple men in my RWA chapter. But you’re right, somehow picture UFC fighters and RWA just don’t go together.

    But wait! Lori Foster writes romances with fighters :-)

    Yes, I am. :) And you’re right, except for the book meeting, I do sound like a guy. hehe
